The great Billy Graham
« on: February 22, 2018, 08:17:02 PM »
I haven't been a fundamentalist in 50 years but this sermon is magnificent.  What a man of God, what a messenger, what a man of the Christ, for the Christ, and for us all.  Thanks be to God for this man:

Our former Priest published a moving tribute to him yesterday. In he made the statement that while Billy Graham was ''Protestant'' he actually followed CS Lewis ''Mere Christianity'' in practice and in life. He was a friend to the Orthodox faith and others, a true representative of Christ. 

He will be missed. However we should not morn, he is home with his Heavenly Father now. 
President Harry S. Truman said: “The fundamental basis of this nation’s laws was given to Moses on the Mount.  The fundamental basis of our Bill of Rights comes from the teachings…  If we don't have the proper fundamental moral background, we will finally wind up with a totalitarian government which does not believe in rights for anybody except the state.”

His net worth upon his death is estimated at $25,000,000.

Which is quite a bit less than that of Barack Obama.

Wrong as always - that's quite a bit more than Obama's net worth. 

Years ago I went into my daughter's room, who was probably around 9 years old at the time, and there was money (dollars) spread out all over the carpet in her room.  So I asked her, "what's all that money doing all over the floor?"  She said, "I was rolling around in it."  You might have to know her to get how funny that is.

Really Fuzz?  So 25 is less than 65 to 100?   Had he been motivated by acquiring money, he would have been worth hundreds of millions.  Plus, Graham gave tens of millions to charity in his life time, and saved millions of lives.   Thats right,  millions of lives.   Maybe even my own.

And Obama is all out for money, as he and his lovely wife always have been:

Worth does not translate to money he has. From past articles I have read Rev Graham took a salary of around 50K a year and 15 k for  housing. Everything else is set aside to support he various charities and his school for training ministers. It is a shame that Fuzz and jerks like him can not even have enough decency to wait for a person to be buried before making false attacks about them. However this is nothing new with their kind.
